I went to LensCrafters and asked them to straighen my glasses frames again. I believe I now have a slightly less askew personal presentation style. I like to imagine that I have an inner grace, but somehow that does not translate into an ability to keep glasses frames intact.
I tried to get a new cell phone, as my little flip-phone seems button-weary after three years, but the Verizon office was closed on Sunday. I hope I can get something fun without having to increase my monthly payments. I remember how, before I got my little flip-phone, I used to think a work acquaintance's was so "hip", while my cell phone was so clunky. Now my phone is old technology. Heaven spare,me, though, from wearing headphones and speaking into the open air at airports. Things that used to get one committed now merely mean one is modern.
I gave the grass its November final mow, although our warm weather lately suggests to me that it might be the "next to last" mow instead. Our two native tree plantings are having mixed results. The Mexican buckeye is throwing off shoots, and seems to be settling in fine. The Eve's Necklace, by contrast, which should be more at home than a Mexican buckeye, shows sad signs of not making it. I resisted the cedar elm, because I wanted quirkier trees, but all our neighbors' cedar elms tower, while our two ornamental trees are quite small, and one is failing. Perhaps if the Eve's Necklace goes I'll relent on the cedar elm.
The weekend seemed to fly by. Yet, I have this positive feeling about this work week. Special Days of the Dead resolution: no more candy.
